Summary: I bought this game because it got great reviews and some people had it on their lists for their 6-7 year old. Well, this game is WAY TOO ADVANCED for a 6 year old... more like 16! It requires geometry, etc for some of the puzzles! And, my daughter is no dummy...
Summary: I was very disappointed in this game. I expected it to be such a wonderful game seeing how I've played it before on my friend's DS before I got mine, but it was absolutely terrible! The puzzles are really hard and all you do is walk around the town of St. Mystere doing puzzles.
Summary: I was excited to start this game and thought the mystery would last for a while, at least more than a week of playing. Unfortunately, after the mystery is solved, all you're left with are the puzzles, which actually get really annoying after a while. Also, the mystery practically solves itself.
Summary: This was the first Professor Layton game, and while it explains the origins of a few characters (Flora, most notably), I really only recommend that you play this if you're a big Layton fan and want to play all the games, or if this is the very first one you're playing.
Summary: I played this one AFTER "Diabolical Box" and "Unwound Future." I was a little disappointed in the puzzle selections after experiencing the quality of the sequels, but it's still worth playing every nook and cranny!
My dear Luke, a true gentlemen always tells the truth!

Summary: Professor Layton and The Curious Village is a simple adventure game for the DS that is driven by abstractly related puzzles and the player's own determination to unravel the "mystery" of the plot.
Summary: I love most of this game -- the story, the translation, the music and voice acting, the artwork, the fact that if you can read and hold the stylus, you can play it. If I love it, why do I only give it an overall 3 stars? Because the puzzles themselves are deeply unbalanced.
